Mr R Tingle - Associate Assistant Principal

After studying in Lancaster I was unsure of which career path to choose. To begin with I worked in HR, Quality Assurance and Insurance but knew these were not for me.

On embarking on a career in teaching I worked at Mexborough School (now The Laurel) for 8 years followed by spells at Thornhill Community Academy in Dewsbury and Forge Valley School in Sheffield and I have held various roles with increasing responsibility during this time.

I started at Outwood Academy Danum in January 2019 as Head of IT and Business.

I am passionate about teaching and learning and believe by instilling a strong work ethic and discipline in pupils this helps to raise their aspirations in order to achieve their potential and give them the broadest range of choices and chances in life.
